A German History

Schloss Elmau has been built from 1914 - 1916 by the philosopher Dr. Johannes Müller, as a retreat for his readers. A major fire destroyed the building in 2005. His grandson Dietmar Mueller-Elmau rebuilt it from 2006-2007 as a Luxury Spa & Cultural Hideaway and Member of the Leading Hotels of the World. The Retreat was opened as a second hotel in 2015, which hosted the Heads of State and Government at the G7 Summit 2015 with Chancelor Angela Merkel and President Barack Obama  and with Chancelor Olaf Scholz and President Joe Biden at the G7 Summit 2022.
